The hollow, almost tribal, drumming that starts the latest single from The Duke Spirit gets you hooked immediately. And when the guitars chip in and Leila begins to sing in her sultry vocals the job is done, a completely addictive single. Not that this is unusual for the bluesy five piece, they have been gathering momentum now for some time with their previous singles (‘Lion Rip’, ‘Cuts Across The Land’), their touring and festival slots.
